CITIZENSHIP EDUCATION

 

In addition to the Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen programs, Lincoln VFW Post 3010 provides other programs and services to the community such as a recognition program for teachers who instill a sense of national pride in their students.

SCHOOLS

The Post can also provide a program for Veterans in the Classroom. Members of the Post, all of whom have served their nation in combat operations overseas, will visit schools to present programs such as:

  • The meaning of Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, and similar events.
  • History of the U.S. Flag
  • The Story of the Pledge of Allegiance
  • Assist schools in presenting student awards which are related to achievements related to good citizenship.

Every day, we strive to thank America’s educators by providing them with helpful resources and encouraging our members to visit local classrooms. Let us help you educate America’s future leaders and bring history to life!

Veterans play an important role in educating our nation’s youth about the founding principles upon which America was founded. As combat veterans, VFW members can provide students with a unique perspective about the sacrifices America’s service members make to maintain freedom for all of us.

When visiting a classroom, a VFW member will prepare a brief introduction, a main presentation and a Q&A session. Depending on the topic, a member may bring appropriate memorabilia, uniforms, photographs and other relevant material.

American history is something we all share, and there’s no one better to help tell that story than someone who’s had a great part in shaping it.

For additional information, and to arrange for a Veterans in the Classroom presentation, contact the Post Adjutant: VFW Post 3010
